THE MESSENGER DASHES BETWEEN 8-BIT & 16-BIT GENERATIONS AUGUST 30

Sydney, Australia – Aug 17, 2017HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston Technology, today introduced its latest addition to its award winning lineup of gaming keyboards used by esports athletes worldwide – the HyperX Alloy Elite Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. HyperX delivers the enhanced performance that gamers expect with all the components needed for a competitive gaming setup, including Cherry MX mechanical switches, lighting effects, 100 percent anti-ghosting, and solid-steel frames.

Quebec City – Sabotage and Devolver Digital have announced the much-anticipated ninja adventure The Messenger will launch on Nintendo Switch and PC Thursday, August 30. Eager students of the shadowy martial arts can pre-order the game on the Nintendo Switch eShop [https://goo.gl/mxihCi] and Steam [https://goo.gl/gRwWGE] for $19.99.

Since its announcement, The Messenger has garnered attention and awards throughout development and has become one of the most anticipated indie Nintendo Switch releases of the year. Players assume the role of a nameless ninja warrior venturing through a cursed world on a mission to deliver a scroll paramount to his clan’s survival as a demon army besieges his village. The adventure starts as a traditional, linear 8-bit ninja saga but soon expands into a thrilling time-traveling adventure intertwined with a 16-bit universe full of more ‘metroidvania’ exploration and secrets. All tied together with katana-sharp gameplay and controls and set against an original chiptune score by renowned composter Rainbowdragoneyes.

Created by industry veterans Thierry Boulanger and Martin Brouard in April 2016, Sabotage is a Quebec-based independent game studio creating original IPs combined with retro aesthetics and modern game design. The Messenger is their debut project as a team though that’s hard to believe once you play it – hella cool game.

The Messenger will be playable at Gamescom and PAX West later this month. Follow @SabotageQC and visit sabotagestudio.com for more news and information on the game.
